Shooting Woes Ails Women's Basketball Again In Loss At Queens

CHARLOTTE, NC -- Queens claimed a 69-63 win over visiting Catawba in women’s basketball action on Monday night at Ovens Athletic Center.   The Royals improve to 2-3, while the Catawba Indians fall to 4-3.

Jacquia Winstead and Marissa Hudley each posted double-doubles for Queens.  Hudley scored 20 points and added 10 rebounds, while Winstead had 14 points, 12 boards and four assists.  Pamela Muldrow (Jacksonville, NC/Southwest HS) led Catawba with 22 points with Brooke Whitley (New London, NC/N. Stanly HS) adding 14 points and nine rebounds.

Catawba struggled most of the night offensively.  The Lady Indians shot just 32% from the field in the first half and were 2-of-8 at the line.  Queens also enjoyed a hefty 27-15 edge on the glass.  Winstead had a dozen at the break, while Hudley added 10 to help the Royals to a 34-25 edge after 20 minutes.

After surrendering the opening basket, Queens ran off 10 straight points in the opening four minutes.  The Lady Indians reduced a 24-13 deficit to six after three straight buckets by Whitley, but an 8-4 run by Queens ended the half.

Catawba didn’t fare much better early in the second half as they made just one of its first 12 shots, a layup by Maggie Sullivan (Fort Mill, SC/Charlotte Christian HS), and fell behind 42-28.  The Lady Indians made its first push midway through the last half as Whitley canned a three-pointer to pull Catawba within 44-41 with 8:12 remaining.

Queens scored six straight points, but two free throws by Sullivan and two jumpers by Muldrow trimmed the deficit back to three at 50-47 with 4:46 remaining.  The Royals responded again with a three-point play by Hudley and a steal and layup by Cecilia Tchangoue for a 57-47 lead with 2:26 left. 

Down eleven, Catawba hit four three-pointers in the final minute and a half, but Tchangoue hit 5-of-6 at the line and added a layup to keep Queens on top.  Muldrow’s final three got the Lady Indians within 67-63 with nine seconds left, but Jessica Lewis converted a pair of free throws to ice things.

Muldrow and Whitley combined to hit over half (13 of the 25) the shots for Catawba.  Muldrow went 8-of-14 and Whitley was 5-of-12, the rest of the team hit only 12-of-46 attempts.  Queens finished with a 51-38 edge on the boards to help offset 29 turnovers.
